Social media enthusiast and Brit-nadian Dave Fleet reviewed our book Historical Tweets yesterday, and had this to say:

I’ve shown Historical Tweets to numerous people now, and every one of them has found different things to laugh at. That’s a winner in my book.

I’ve enjoyed every moment of reading it so far, and will likely continue to do so for a while.

Great coffee table reading for geek-filled households.
